"Happy Birthday Mom . . . "


Greetings,

I want to take a little break from our holiday festivities around here to wish my sweet mother a happy birthday.  As with anyone born in the month a December, her birthday always seemed to get mashed up with Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Not always a proper party or gifts.

Not this year.

So - Happy Birthday Mom . . . the gracious lady who taught me how to entertain. Who taught both the power of a good attitude, and the many uses of a bad one.  Who taught me not to leave the house ill-dressed just in case I were to see someone I knew.  Who taught me to embrace the love of travel.  Who taught me that one can never actually have too many dishes.  And who continues to teach me about enjoying life - and not putting up with anyone's bullshit.

That's my mom.

Cheers,
Scot

Aww, totally sweet. She looks like you, or you like her ;-) I love her lessons, especially the no bullshit and leaving the house looking nice. Wish more American men would lose the sneakers.

I cannot tell you how touched I was that you honored your Mom and shared with us. Brought me to tears really. My Dad passed away 1993 and it still feels like last year. Thank You Scot Cheers and to your Mom a most beloved Birthday.
